A la Picanto!
Tomato Salsa cha cha cha! Hehe! I thought why not add a new category menu to my blog with this picante tomato salsa because who doesn’t love a good salsa.It goes with everything and on everything from Bruschetta to any Mauritian dish. I personally love it as it is the best condiment ever. It adds so much flavour to your dish. Mauritian people love their tomato salsa with a touch of zesty lemon over on top. Yum! Here in Mauritius it is commonly known as the ”Satini/Salade Pomme D’Amour”.
True who doesn’t know how to make them.But as I am mostly bringing out our traditional Mauritian food through my blog, I guess this was a must add on to my food posts. It is the small things that make the big picture later on.Am I right? Hehe
So for this tomato salsa you would need the followings:
- Couple of tomatoes
- 1 Onion finely chopped
- A bunch of Coriander leaves
- Salt/Pepper to taste
- Olive Oil
- 1 Lemon/Lime wedge
First diced your tomatoes by removing the seeds so that they do not cause acidity later on and also this helps to mellow the flavour.
Afterwards finely chop all your other ingredients and mix altogether with the diced tomatoes. Add salt/pepper according to your taste and 1 tsp of Olive oil drizzled over for more flavours. At the end garnish with coriander leaves on top and press 1 lemon wedge all over it for the zesty touch.
And you’re done! I am so fond of this that I can eat it on everything even on noodles.You can also make a chutney out of it by blending all of the above into a blender and thus have what is called a tomato chutney. Equally yummy too with nachos but then we eat the chutney along with fritters like Aubergine fritters or with our popular Gateaux Piments (Chilli cakes).
Hopefully you love this new category menu of mine to this blog.I will add more to it and maybe looking forward to a kicking mint-chilli paste, which I have been mentioning quite a few times as well. Mauritian love it spicy hot and kicking and it is very popular too as condiment.
Thank you for reading always x
